I suggest you ...

API or Import format for allow writing Android/iOS Apps

Either:
* port the API to Android or
* create a simple XML import+export format that maps 1:1 to transactions with multiple splits (no bayes, no limit on 2 splits per transaction) and allows removal of existing transactions with the same id
* provide another means to add+remove transactions without a desktop computerand without user interaction

        ANY import format that allows for split transactions would be nice.
        (and a way to at least call gnucash from the command line to do the import, save and exit.)

        OFX doesn't support it.
        CVS obviously not.
        DTaus/MT940/MT942 don't seem to be public standards one can easily implement at all.

        Since you don't want a public XML schema for your file format nor do an Android port yourself,
        at least allow others a realistic way of writing mobile apps that interface with accounting.
